The Remedy has been in Trek’s lineup for a while now, but it underwent significant revisions for 2017.
The Fuel EX exists one notch down in Trek’s hierarchy, and it’s a bike that’s well suited to trail duties. But as the Fuel EX also underwent revisions that made it a more capable bike in demanding terrain, the Remedy needed to step up its game to avoid unnecessary overlap.
And step up its game it did. Despite not having the most travel and not being the slackest, lowest, heaviest, or whatever other metric you want to use, the Remedy is an impressive performer on the roughest, steepest trails around.
